So I’m very sad to say that I’m pretty sure we lost our cat Rosie last night. Missy opened the door at 2:00am to let Kaya out, and she didn’t notice that Rosie had also slipped out. With the high winds, I guess we didn’t hear her meowing to come back in and she also didn’t accompany Kaya when we let her back in around 3:00am.
I’ve spent about an hour this morning searching for her and calling for her, but to no avail. She’s spent the night outside many times before, but not in the winter when the temperature was hovering near freezing. I don’t even want to speculate as to what her fate might have been.
Needless to say, I’m very upset. I don’t normally do emo blog posts, but I don’t know what else to do. She was the best cat I’ve ever had, and although not always the most personable cat with strangers, she was very sweet to our family, frequently giving us kisses and loving to snuggle. She loved the dogs and had just started warming up to the baby.
God, I’m feeling really devastated right now. I’m sure some will read this and think, “it’s only a stupid cat”, but I am very sentimental about our companion animals. They’re members of the family.

Guess who just sauntered back in after being out all night? Stupid cat.
